History of Kirkwood:

The population was just over 27,000 in the 2010 census. The city was founded in 1853 and was named after the builder of the Pacific Railroad that ran through the area, James P. Kirkwood. It was the first suburb that was planned for the west side of the Mississippi River. A Richardsonian Romanesque style rail station was built in 1893 and now resides on the National Register of Historic Places and remains an integral part of this quaint suburban town. This rail station is the only other station in the St. Louis metropolitan area that Amtrak stops at other than the city center. There are four other buildings in the town that also have NRHP status which shows how the area has retained a lot of its historical status.
